    Anyone used this for batch files?

    How do you find it - simple and reliable? Any suggestions of problems to look out for?

    Cheers

    I haven't seen anyone use KiXtart in years. We used it for older Win98 and Win95 batch file processing, but group policy has largely fixed that problem for us with newer OSes. Much easier that way.

    We use Kix for the students logon-script (to map printers to PC in suites).

    Yep Kix is kewl for NT/2k but now starting to move away from it after going to 2k3 domain.

    Generally Kix/Kixstart is applied for clients to assign drives and printers etc...

    Note that as it makes the changes at local machine level as part of a net logon process [for example] - it can over-ride your GP stuff that you may implement.

    Remember the precedence in policy application....Local, Site, Domain, OU or "LSDOU" as the acronym for testing purposes.
